Fae Fang (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
Naruhm, a fey lord of both nature and the moon, has sent his chosen to bring balance back to the world. Uncontrollable magic ravages the forests and mages focus their will in such a deadly manner that the chosen have been gifted with powers from their patron. The Fae Fangs blend myth and reality within the minds of others and call forth the power of nature to tip the balance in their favor, calling forth denizens of the forest to assist them. Their patron fey's symbol, the wolf is forever at nearby. A Fae Fangs only desire is to erase potential threats, whether this be warriors or magic, through use of combat or suggestion.

Channel Divinity: Call Companion
Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Channel Divinity to call a companion. As an action, you present your fey symbol and speak a chant of summoning. You can call to your side any beast of CR ¼ or lower, or a pseudodragon. The creature appears within 30ft of you and acts on your turn. It obeys your commands as best it can, but doesn’t take an action unless you command it to. On your turn, you can verbally command the beast where to move with no action required. As an action, you can command it to take the Attack, Dash, Disengage, Dodge or Help action. The beast remains for a number of minutes equal to your Wisdom modifier before it returns to the Feywild, or until slain. At higher levels you can summon more powerful creatures. CR ½ at 5th, 1 at 8th, 2 at 11th, 3 at 14th and 4 at 17th
Channel Divinity: Charm Animals and Plants
Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Channel Divinity to charm animals and plants. As an action, you present your holy symbol and invoke the name of your deity. Each beast or plant creature that can see you within 30ft of you must make a Wisdom saving throw. If the creature fails its saving throw it is charmed by you for 1 minute or until it takes damage. While it is charmed by you, it is friendly to you and other creatures you designate. For 1 minute after using this feature, you are considered to be under the effect of Speak With Animals, regardless of whether the animals passed their saves.
Channel Divinity: Read Thoughts
At 6th level, you can use your Channel Divinity to read a creature's thoughts. You can then use your access to the creature's mind to command it.
As an action, choose one creature that you can see within 60 feet of you. That creature must make a Wisdom saving throw. If the creature suceeds on its saving throw, you cannot use this feature again on it until you finish a long rest.
If the creature fails its save, you can read its surface thoughts (those foremost in its mind, reflecting its current emotions and what it is actively thinking about) when it is within 60 feet of you. This effect lasts for 1 minute.
During that time, you can use a minor action to end this effect and cast the suggestion spell on the creature without expending a spell slot. The target automatically fails its saving throw against the spell.
Fey Blade At 8th level, you gain the ability to infuse your weapon with energy from the fae realm. Once on each of your turns when you hit a creature with a weapon attack, you can cause the attack to deal an extra 1d8 damage of psychic damage to the target. When you reach 14th level, the extra damage increases to 2d8
At 10th level, you choose an archetype that you strive to emulate: Neutralisation, Detection or Evasion, all the choices are detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 10th level, 15th level and 17th level.
At 20th level, you may perform a ritual that takes one hour to complete in order to call a permanent animal companion as per the Call Companion feature, at a maximum CR of ¼. This companion gains all the benefits of your Archetype, and you may still use the Call Companion feature to call another companion. You can command your permanently bonded companion to take specific actions as a bonus action, otherwise it will always act to defend you.
